I can't believe this myself, but have just finished whipping the edge of A Day in The Country, a design by Tonya Robey.
Again...hallelujah; it is a day I've been waiting for since starting it at a camp in November 2015. It still needs to be steamed from the back to soften, ease and smooth the ripples of the yarn at the edge. This is a pattern/kit I've had for quite some time so it is nice to see it finished.
Must give credit to the yarn wool used for the whipped edge. That wool was a gift given me by a departed hooker and spinner friend Lesley Coveney. I'm not a spinner but those of you who are will understand that the tag attached to the hank of yarn was "Romney fleece, "Princess", and was dyed with Pro-Chem "Brick".
Kris and Lauren, you were right.... there was plenty of yarn to whip the edge of this rug and some left over.
Now waiting in the wings is binding the sheep rug. That one won't jave a yarn whipped edge but will be bound. Stay tuned to see that one and what is next on my frame.
